Osaka Prefectural Forest Hoshida Park "Hoshi no Buranko”

The suspension bridge is the symbol of Hoshi Furu Sato.

Suspension Bridge

With an elevation of 180 meters, a length of 280 meters, and a maximum height of 50 meters above the ground. It is one of the largest suspension bridges built for people in Japan. The town of Katano, where the "Hoshi no Buranko" is located, is known as the home of the Tanabata legend, and the suspension bridge was given its nickname as a symbol of the starry night that can be seen there.

Once you cross the suspension bridge, you will see a spectacular view of the forest, and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the four seasons throughout the year.
The suspension bridge is solidly built, but it can sway, so it can be a thrilling experience. We hope you can enjoy a walk in the fresh air while admiring the beautiful scenery around you.

It's also nice to know that there are hiking routes available to suit all fitness levels.
However, since this is a nature park, there are slopes and slippery areas. Be sure to wear shoes that are comfortable to walk in, and be prepared to go out and have fun.
